good morning, america. and this morning, breaking news. is rupert murdoch about to step aside to save his massive empire? new clues to what's next for a dynasty on the brink of disaster on his critical day in the hot seat. then, the extreme weather. a huge dust storm blankets the southwest as those record-breaking temperatures only get warmer. some homes so hot this morning, they are setting up smoke detectors. millionaire murder mystery. two shocking deaths at the mansion of a wealthy businessman. how did his son and his girlfriend die in bizarre circumstances within days of each other? new details inside the police investigation. and the superstar wedding crasher. >> oh, my god, it's justin bieber. oh, my god! >> what would you do if justin bieber crashed your wedding, the big day, without an invite.
7:01 am
the couple with the wedding video everybody is talking about join us here on "gma." good morning, everyone. george is enjoying a little break with the family and our family member, david muir, is back with us. >> crashing your party. >> justin bieber, david muir, the same thing. >> it's not quite the same thing. >> it is. >> nonetheless. >> how about this extreme weather? >> really something, these pictures coming in. >> from phoenix blowing in last night going through right there. that dust storm, and then these temperatures all -- the majority of the country feeling it, david. >> smoke alarms going off because of the heat. then alarms going off here, these are different kinds as team usa is in the house. look at them just arriving moments ago. what a homecoming. >> we're going to really celebrate with them coming up.
7:02 am
love to see them here in times square on our home turf. >> huge crowd for them there this morning. we'll begin with the high-stakes drama unfolding as we come on the air in that phone hacking scandal engulfing rupert murdoch's media empire. murdoch, his son james and former top lieutenant rebekah brooks who was arrested all set to face what may be their toughest day yet in the scandal. abc's jeffrey kofman has been following the latest and has new developments coming this morning. . >> reporter: and good morning to you, david. it has begun. they're appearing before parliament to answer questions about the scandal that has turned this country upside-down. their reputations now at stake. rupert murdoch began his appearance with an apology. >> this is the most humbled day of my life. i would like to say how sorry i am and how sorry we are.
7:03 am
to particularly to the victims of illegal voice mail interceptions. it's of great regret for everybody at news corporation. >> reporter: for this family, everything is at stake. the global media empire rupert murdoch built and his dreams of handing it over to his children. today for the first time since the scandal broke here they will answer questions publicly before british politicians. it is must see tv around the world. a media dynasty on the brink. >> if you look at murdoch and i've looked at him for many, many years, he's a man that knows what's going on in his company. >> reporter: what did murdoch and his son know about the alleged widespread criminal activity at "news of the world." did they use the power of their four london papers to squash efforts to investigate? james, who was to succeed his father, is now almost certainly sidelined. he's admitted paying more than a million dollars in hush money to two victims of phone hacking. why was it worth so much money to them?
7:04 am
>> is it because he knew that actually there had been vast amount of criminality in his newspaper and he wanted to cover it up? >> reporter: we'll also be hearing from rebekah brooks, murdoch's loyal lieutenant. who resigned on friday and arrested on sunday. she has not been charged. mysteriously police found a laptop and papers belonging to her husband in the trash of a car parked near her home yesterday. the contents are now being investigated. rupert murdoch and his son scheduled to appear before this committee for just an hour. the british law doesn't have anything like our fifth amendment. they're compelled to answer questions if they are asked. >> jeffrey kofman starting us in london. >> jeffrey kofman starting us off in london. i want to bring in dan abrams this morning. dan, always good to see you. >> good morning. >> you know, jeffrey points out the empire is huge and not only
7:05 am
newspapers overseas but here, as well, everything from "american idol." it will be rupert's performance. how carefully will he choose his words? can anything he says be held against him? >> it's crucial and i'm sure that he's been prepped for this. expect that, of course, he's going to say he didn't have any knowledge of what was happening. but still how he answers these questions are going to be important. how respectful is he? does he recognize how serious this is? and, of course, all of the members of parliament or at least some of them are going to want to do finger wagging at him so they can publicly say that they are taking this incredibly serious. >> the finger wagging famous across the pond but back here almost unthinkable a week ago that his own corporation would be considering, considering replacing him based on his performance. >> they have to make it seem like they get it. they have to make it seem like they understand that this is really serious and if this gets out of hand, we would even consider this. so i think that while i'm certain this is real, it's also a matter of public relations, i
7:06 am
think, to make the world feel that news corp gets it, that they get how serious this is. >> and, dan, just how long before there's concern over criminal liability here? >> question one is was there any hacking done on u.s. soil? that would be a real concern. and, secondly, also federal law which says if you're a company and you're bribing foreign officials, you could be in legal risk, as well. >> just the beginning. dan abrams, thanks so much, robin? all right. it's been another 24 hours of extreme and intense weather in this country. abc's matt gutman has been tracking the latest from oklahoma city. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, robin, good morning. the sun is just coming up in oklahoma city. you can already feel the heat. folks embracing themselves for their 23rd consecutive triple-digit day. i want to show you how hot it's been here. these are one-ton cement slab,
7:07 am
they were lifted right out of the street and buckled. just one of the unusual phenomenon we're seeing because of this massive heat zone. imagine coming face to face with this in your rush hour commute. in phoenix a massive wall of dust 3,000 feet high known as a haboob. it blanketed the city grounding flights in a sea of brown haze. move farther east and the trouble isn't dust but dangerous record-breaking heat. 20 states under heat warnings or advisories, we used this infrared thermometer to show just how hot it is along the texas/oklahoma border. football is king in the center of the country but let's say you want to watch it from the stands. sitting through 138 degrees. today northern texas will hit triple digits for the 18th day in a row. abc's yunji de nies is here. >> here in lake arlington in north texas, they're losing two inches of water in this lake every day. normally the water level would be above my head but now it's six feet below normal levels and dropping fast. >> reporter: in oklahoma, 911
7:08 am
calls captured the dire situation. >> we had a man go down due to the heat. he's sweating profusely. we can't get his breathing or his heart rate to slow down. >> reporter: and further north it was so intense it sent off smoke alarms from iowa to minnesota. at this twins game, 50 fans like this woman had to be treated for heat exhaustion while i-94 seemed to pop right out of the highway. and folks really need to be careful about their cars. in 100 degrees it can reach 140 inside your car in just 15 minutes. park it in the sun, it can reach 170. enough to cook this steak well done. robin? >> ooh, that is secret to keep in mind, all right there, matt, thanks. let's turn to sam. what's so important for them to know about the heat index? >> the body can't cool itself with high humidity and high heat, 1995, in a five-day heat wave in chicago where it got to 118 degrees, 750 people died.
7:09 am
that's how dire the numbers are. they look like big numbers and they're important, 128, 126. you rarely see heat index levels like this. your body can't exist in numbers like that for a long period of time and they're in the 90s overnight. it's this area of high pressure that continues to pump that heat all the way into the country right along the canadian border and moves into new england over the next couple of days. a little cold front brings a break to new york then right back to it but the rest of the nation is baking and we will talk about this intense heat when we come back with the rest of the nation's forecast. >> all right, sam, thank you very much and the heat is on in d.c. for another reason. >> that's right, the other numbers we're watching this morning. the clock ticking on the deadline for washington to reach an agreement on raising the federal debt ceiling. you can see right there, 13 days and counting. it helped push the stock market to its lowest close in a month on monday. it's also causing a big surge in
7:10 am
gold prices sending them to a record level so john berman with a closer look. >> reporter: the debt deadlock in washington could be the road to economic calamity but for now at least it's a yellow brick road. investors looking for a safe bet pouring their money into gold. sending it soaring past a record $1,600 an ounce and sending eager necklace, ring and coin owners to cash in. in los angeles, they're dumping whatever they can to make an extra buck. >> i'll melt it and then get the little bar and turn it in for cash. >> reporter: at $1,600 an ounce are the prices too good to last? that's what we thought in march of 2008. bianna golodryga watched as a trip to a gold buyer netted a solid $3,300. at today's rate it would be worth a whopping $5,400. october, 2008, "good morning america" checked out a gold house party. then, one woman's haul was $1,200 bucks.
7:11 am
now her trinkets would be worth $2,300. and just this april i watched a woman sell her ex-boyfriend's gold for a $6,000 payday. that ex-boyfriend, how do you feel about him now? >> so glad i went out with him. it was worth all the heartache now. >> reporter: now she would be feeling even better. the $6,000 payday in april would be 6,400 today. just a few months later. so with no debt deal we all might be facing the threat of economic doom and gloom. but for some sellers this week, gloom comes with a gleam. for "good morning america," john berman, abc news, new york. and for more now on the latest gold rush we're joined by mellody hobson, president of ariel investment. why are we seeing gold prices skyrocket like that? >> so this is what we call a fear trade. when fear is very high, gold is too, and, of course, we know that's because people perceive gold to be very, very safe. and there is a lot of fear out there. we've got a trifecta of fear right now. we've got the debt ceiling issue. we've got the sovereign debt
7:12 am
issue where basically countries have maxed out their credit cards and then, of course, we have the issues around the middle east and all the turmoil that's been there and that have led to high gold prices. >> they can't keep going up, can they? >> i don't think so. over the short term, maybe, maybe in advance of august 2nd, the big day on the debt ceiling. over the long term gold is not a great investment. if we "x" out the last couple of years, 25 years before that it returned 4% a year. when you factor in inflation, that's a zero return. the stock market has done more than double that. the stock market has been and will be the better investment over the long term. >> okay. you can say all that but people just saw that report and they see how it's really continuing to go up and how people are making a lot of money. people will want to buy gold. should they? >> i would not be a buyer of anything that's gone up over 100% in three years. the likelihood of it repeating, minimal.
7:13 am
zero. it's not going to happen. i'd be a seller in this market so these commercials about selling your gold -- >> we see a lot of these commercials. >> i wouldn't do it through the infomercials but i would run down to my local jeweler and take the old gold and sell it. i wouldn't buy. >> i've seen it where people go and it's melted down and they leave with like a little gold bar. >> right, gold is sold in troy ounces which is heavier than a regular ounce and, again, right now i'd be a seller. i don't think these prices will stay for the long term. >> i know you'll be back. i hated pop quizzes in school and you'll have a pop quiz for our audience a little later. oh, no. thanks a lot, mellody. for some other developing stories over to the news desk and say good morning to josh elliott. good morning, josh. >> good morning to you, robin. let's get to what's happening right now. we'll begin with the fight against al qaeda. u.s. officials now say that under its new leader, ayman al zawahiri who replaced osama bin laden, the terror group can shifting its strategy.
7:14 am
instead of focusing on attacking the u.s. homeland officials tell "the wall street journal" al qaeda is now targeting american interests overseas in africa and europe where plots are thought to be easier to execute. meantime, abc news has learned that american-born terrorist anwar awlaki barely escaped a missile strike in yemen. his truck actually emerged from the flames of the strike before he made his escape in a different vehicle. this morning the pope accepted the resignation of cardinal rigali and his handling of the sex abuse scandal, the 76-year-old cardinal resigned because of his age, not because he was accused of covering up for abusive priests. now to reports out of denver this morning, yet another air traffic controller is in trouble with the law for allegedly drinking before work. abc's lisa stark is following the investigation and has the very latest. good morning to you, lisa. >> reporter: good morning, josh. well, abc news has confirmed
7:15 am
that a veteran controller working in colorado apparently failed a random alcohol test while he was on the job. now, this controller was working at denver center, that's a facility that handles airplanes over nine different states. this was first reported by our affiliate kmgh. they say the test occurred on july 5th and that the controller was then immediately relieved of his duties and has since entered alcohol rehabilitation. the faa tells us the controller is not right now no longer working air traffic while they continue their investigation. josh? >> thank you, lisa stark. and meanwhile, gas prices are going up again. rising some 4 cents in the last week alone. the new average now across the nation, $3.68 per gallon. prices are expected to keep rising slowly through october. and history was made in space this morning. the shuttle "atlantis" undocked from the international space station for the last time. astronauts left behind the u.s.
7:16 am
flag that was flown on the first shuttle mission 30 years ago. the shuttle program ends thursday when "atlantis" arrives home. finally, well, you've heard of police cracking down on people who text while driving. but what about all those people who run into you on the sidewalk because they're texting while walking? police in the so-called city of brotherly love plan to start ticketing pedestrians who can't take their eyes off their phones. >> what's next? >> walking while texting is soon going to be illegal and the fine, $120. >> they're going to rack up in the city. >> they are. how many times have you been like, whoa. >> hundreds of thousands of dollars in times square alone. >> can i give you credit here because the world cup team was walking in behind you as you were wrapping up the newscast and you kept your focus. look at them. they're here in the studio. and you never broke stride, josh elliott. >> thank you.
7:17 am
>> put your seat belt on this morning. >> i want to offer a very first congratulations. you lifted a nation's spirits. yes. i just -- i might as well take advantage of that. after all i didn't break it. >> so great to have them. >> we'll talk to them in just a second. let's get over to sam with the weather. hi, sam. >> good morning, robin, david, josh, good morning, everyone. let's deal with the heat index numbers, the number to pay attention to. it's the intense humidity and the high heat combined that makes it so difficult on your body to cool itself. when these numbers started in like 90-degree heat index in minneapolis this morning then go to 107 degrees, it means you don't get a chance to ever cool your body down. and heat is your number one weather killer. this is serious stuff. anywhere where you see magenta, and this is almost all over the country it's a big-time problem and it will be this way this week into this weekend. quick look at where the thunderstorms will do some cooling and drop out of the great lakes and right through virginia, the new york city area will drop in temperature a bit tomorrow and everything north of it but the heat will come right back up. just a temporary break.
7:18 am
7:19 am
>> all of america's weather coming up in the next half hour. oh, robin. >> oh, sam, we are thrilled to have the entire u.s. women's world cup soccer team right here with us. we'll talk to them all just ahead. say hello to mom and dad. give them a wave. but abby wambach is going to join us, and she just, you know, first of all, can we just have a little applause for this tremendous team and effort?? all right, people. i'm telling you. abby, i'm looking in your eyes. this is bittersweet for you. you sat down and like oh, you know, it's got to be tough. >> it is hard. the bitter part is obviously not winning and not bringing home a cup for our country. and the sweet part is the reception that we've gotten all across this nation. we got back here in times square yesterday. couldn't believe the crowds.
7:20 am
it was amazing and honestly as tough as it is to lose, it's making us all feel a little bit better just knowing how much this country supported us. absolutely, and almost as if after every interview it becomes more real. but in the end we made so many people proud. i know that the e-mails, the text messages, the tweeting that was happening. >> set a record. >> was impressive and i couldn't be prouder of this team because in the end we never gave up and i think that that's something to hold on to. >> giant homecoming this week. i'm a syracuse boy. i know you're from rochester. heading upstate? >> yeah, we have a wps game wednesday and the whole city is just -- i think the city is shutting down so i'm really excited to get home. >> we'll have the team many stick around and head out to times square. >> "good morning america" set. >> thanks, guys. thanks so much. coming up what really happened behind the doors of this california mansion. two tragic deaths in one week. >> it's all coming up.

7:32 am
family members say they are still in total shock about what happenen in this mansion behind me. at this point they simply don't know what to believe. this is rebecca zahau and her boyfriend's 6-year-old son max sharing a happy moment. but this morning they share a tragic connection. both died within days of each other after bizarre incidents. at historic beachside estate. two separate tragedies in the sprawling 27-room mansion owned by jonah shacknai. the 54-year-old multimillionaire ceo of medicis pharmaceutical, the company behind botox competitor restylane. they were spending the summer here. last monday zahau was home when max had an accident. on a master staircase. paramedics went to the scene. >> they found the child at the foot of the stairs, the child was not breathing and did not have a pulse. >> reporter: max was revivived d hospitalized. just two days later zahau was discovered hanging by a noose from the second floor balcony at
7:33 am
the mansion, found naked, wrists and ankles bound. shacknai wasn't home. his brother found her r dy and called police. investigigors took evidence from the home but are still piecing together what happened. not sure yet if she was killll or if she killed herself. >> sometimes people commit suicide and they do very unusual things and we're wide open to all possibilities. >> reporter: but zahau's sister tells abc news rebecca wouldn't take her own life saying she was a beautiful, vibrant, loving and kind person and would never do this to herself. she said rebecca dated him for nearly three years and they were a happy couple and then on sunday, nearly a week after his accident, shacknai announced that max had died from his injuries. now the famimies a a left to wonder just what happened in both deaths. and police are keeping quiet. still waiting for autopsy and toxicology reports for more clues. shacknai was married twice
7:34 am
before and his last marriage ended in a messy divorce where they both accused each other of domestic violence, though neither r e was ever arrested. david? >> all right, abbie, thanks very much. i want to bring back in dan abrams this morning. how do you even begin an investigation like this? >> acute primary issues will be number one cause of death h and number two, getting to know the relationships. getting to know how people felt about each other. getting to know was there any history there? so those are going to be the two primary focuses. >> the relationships inside in that home, they won't be fanning out look for suspects. >> i don't think this is going to be a whodunit. it's going to be a what happened here and that's a different kind of investigation when they want to know, for example, is it possible this was self-inflicted. that's going to be a question for the coroner. there will also be questions about would she have done this? could she have done this? so those are two sets of questions that come together in an investigation like this.
7:35 am
>> we already heard our first significant hint with the families now telling abc news she never would have taken her own life, not terribly surprising they would say that but that's a hint. >> family members very often do say that early in an investigation when something like this happens and sometimes they're absolutely right. but investigators can't take that as gospel. they can take that as another piece in the puzzle as they trtr and put together using their investigative techniques exactly what happened. >> dan abrams, thanks. sam? >> david, pictures out of florida, hobe sound, the waves are taller than usual because we have a tropical storm. we're getting these reports up and down the coast. there's good surfing in the jupiter area but usually not quite this good. three to five to seven feet on the waves. watch it in the carolinas all the way around to, well, call it florida as it pull as way and fall as part. here's where the thunderstorms

and we're back on a tuesday morning here on "good morning america." huge crowd here on a hot tuesday morning, right? and we're going to turn now to the deal tass stores often offer to get you to spend more, you know, it all starred with the buy one get one free. now it's about buying in bulk, buying bigger. i permanently love those stories
8:41 am
but becky worley digs in. when you buy 10 or 15 of something are you really saving your money? here's becky. >> reporter: the caveman's brain was it four lions chasing him or seven and did she need 26 more coconuts to survive or as many as possible? ♪ >> reporter: our brain is still a little fuzzy with math. and stores use that to confuse us with numbers in the hopes we'll buy more. >> the better the value, the better the discounts that thth grocer can offer, the more the consumer is likely to fall and buy and spend more while in stores. >> reporter: so here are some tricks to recognize when stores are pushing you to buy mass quantities and stockpile like a caveman. first they offer what i call the 10 for 10 deal. >> just because it's 10 products for $10, it doesn't mean that
8:42 am
you need to buy all 10. you could still buy one and benefit from the deal and the discount. >> reporter: next math trick, the bogo or buy one, get one free. >> the math and breakdown and price per unit gets overlooked quickly. >> reporter: finally the limited offer or scarcity trick. when an offer and ad or circular says limited supply, only four per customer, we think, that must be a really good deal. so good that the store has to prevent a run on the item so if you see a store pushing a bulk buy, a buy one, get one or a limited offer, just calm your inner caveman and only buy what you need. becky worley, abc news, san francisco. >> our thanks to becky for that. coming up next, dispirito is here. he brought back the cards. i got killed last time you were here. >> you did. you lost. >> i'm back. i'm back.

8:46 am
>> i'm ready. fully ready. >> take us through the game. we've got to guess which category -- >> so making a couple things you might make in the summertime, a burger, some grilled corn and a smoothie and these are dishes in their original calorie forms are very bad for you, high calorie, high fat but i've made them healthy. burgers, premade patty that is are frozen or premade fresh have a lot of fat in them as much as 80% can come from fat and very popular frozen burgers so the best thing to do is get your own ground meat that's at least 96% lean and make your own patty. >> yes. >> who makes their own patty, by the way? better, right? saves the money. >> much leaner. yes. >> let's see what you got. >> then the other part of the burger is the sauce. that's where you can go wrong. i make my own, low fat mayonnaise, sugar free relish
8:47 am
and low sugar ketchup and this is my special sauce that tastes a lot like everyone's favorite burger sauce. >> low fat mayonnaise truly low fast or less fat -- >> it's about 60% less than the regular ananwe have a r recipe r low fat mayonnaise that uses yogurt as a base. you could use instead of that all natural greek yogurt. this goes on the burger and, of course, i have a whole wheat bun, i have 2% slice of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes. >> the category this falls into. >> you're saying 150 to 250 and josh is saying. >> 250 to 350. >> yeah, josh. >> the original calorie count of this burger is 850 calories. that's half a day's worth of calories. after the making it is 358 calories. both of you are wrong.
8:48 am
>> next up, the corn. >> from 850 to 368, that's significant. when you taste it, you'll see it still tastes good. mexican corn, one of my favorite things in the whole world. you had it at cafe havana and i had it downtown as well. grill it on the grill in the husk so it's covering the corn then you -- when it's all dark and brown pull the husk make and make a chili mayo and put it on the corn then sprinkle mexican parmesan reggiano. mexican corn started at 265. what is it now. >> 75 to 150. >> for the tie. >> the rocco makeover the mexican corn is 158. both of you are wrong. >> so far it's a tie game.
8:49 am
>> don't let him get the goal in overtime. >> then you've got the smoothie. >> one of the best things to eat, an all around snack especially for breakfast is the smoothie. my favorite kinds are ones that boost metabolism, the way this boosts it is with fruits, pineapple and water mellening, all natural greek yogurt, no flavor in here. if there's jelly at the bottom, it's not what you want. >> takes the flavor of the fruit now. >> lime juice and agave nectar. do you like tequila? the way you get a metabolic boost is using green tea powder available in health store, online, that goes in. that little bit of green tea powder will get your metabolism going in a serious way. >> wow. >> we're going to blend that for a little while.
8:50 am
now, let's see. >> we start this out. >> originally 612 calories. >> so i'll say -- i'm going to say 150. >> feels like "the price is right." >> 300. >> going for an all-time tie. >> what do we got? >> 300. >> taste it to see if you change your mind. >> this smoothie is originally 612 calories. it is now -- >> you give me a chance to -- >> after the rocco makeover, only -- >> 176 calories. >> you let him score a goal in overtime. >> no! >> and we'll be right back. >> we'll need another rematch.
